2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC: a Closer Look


The staff at Mercedes-Benz of Silver Spring have seen SUVs by the dozen come and go over the years. Once a niche vehicle, they’re now displacing coupes and sedans, and they’re loved by College Park and Columbia, MD drivers for their ample space and their ride height. They’ve also been — dare we say it — a bit pedestrian. Until now, with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC.


Its aggressive stance is coupled to a long wheelbase that gives you ample cargo and passenger volume. The exterior, in the meantime, is anything but typical. It’s sure to draw long, appreciative glances from the drivers with whom you share the road.


That’s assuming your fellow drivers see you long enough to form an impression. Both versions of the SUV boast plenty of power, and the speed that brings with it. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, available in RWD and 4MATIC® AWD variants, gets a turbocharged 2.0L 241 horsepower inline four-cylinder engine that puts out 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The powertrain is rounded out by a nine-speed automatic transmission that puts all that power to good use, motivating the SUV from zero to sixty in 6.3 seconds.


The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GLC 43 is a legend in its own right. Its nine-speed transmission routes the biturbo V6 engine’s 362 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. torque to the blacktop with plenty of force, ensuring a  4.8 second zero to sixty time. The powertrain gets a further assist from AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.

Despite their differences, both Mercedes-Benz GLC SUVs also share a lot of technology. That includes the COMAND® system, which leverages telematics, stolen vehicle tracking, roadside assistance, and optional navigation to put an amazing degree of control and situational awareness at your fingertips. There are a number of other features and amenities common to all three models.
